Travel & Connectivity

Situated at the centre of the Gulf, Bahrain is well connected to the whole of the Middle East, and well positioned for travelling either to the West or the East.

Within the Gulf, Saudi Arabia is only an hour drive across the causeway, with its Riyadh commercial hub just four hours away, and Kuwait only four hours away. Destinations such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Muscat or Doha are all just a short flight. Furthermore, within five years the new 45km ‘Friendship Causeway’ to Qatar will be built.



Our world-class Bahrain International Airport has links to more than 45 destinations worldwide, with more than 40 airlines operating flights to all the main international hubs. Gulf Air, our national carrier, operates more than 250 flights a week to Gulf destinations.



Looking to the future, we are expanding the airport, adding to its passenger and freight capacity. By 2014, passenger capacity will expand to 15 million a year, with plans in place for this to reach 27 million by 2038. The airport’s cargo facility is also set to expand to a capacity of one million tons per annum – a level comparable with London’s Heathrow Airport.
